The decisive tip that brought the capture of three Florida siblings dubbed the "Dougherty Gang" came from two retired officers who were just out to enjoy a day in the San Isabel National Forest, according to new details of their arrest.
And it turns out that one of the brothers will also face a charge of grand theft auto, because the 2006 white Subaru Impreza the trio repeatedly used to flee police was a loaner.
When I was a child in Delafield, Wis., I attended Cushing Elementary School. My sisters and I rolled Easter eggs in Cushing Park, and I rode horses at the edge of the old Cushing farm. But I don't remember ever learning a thing about Lt. Alonzo Cushing, a Union officer who was killed at Gettysburg after refusing to retreat in the face of Pickett's Charge.
The original Songs of Fox Hollow was released in 1974.

Tom T. Hall, flanked by producers Eric Brace (left) and Peter Cooper. The three worked together to remake Hall's children's classic, Songs of Fox Hollow.
Singer Tom T. Hall earned the nickname The Storyteller for his mature, literary approach to country songwriting in the 1960s and '70s. When children figured into his songs, they were usually part of adult situations, like the girl who learns about small-town hypocrisy in "Harper Valley PTA."
But one summer in 1974, Hall found himself writing songs for children. The album that resulted, Songs of Fox Hollow, became a cult classic. Now, that record has been remade for a new generation by a group of appreciative Nashville musicians.
